Jump. In this hard time, we need to never give up.
Isolation, giving us more time to spend on our hobbies and passions. For my husband this means an opportunity to get back to working on a project car, and late nights in the shed are no problem when he’s saving over an hour each morning in travel time by working from home. It’s good to find the silver linings.
There are so many layers and stories to this image, physically and metaphorically.
It tells the story of my isolation and the effects of COVID-19 on myself and my community.
As with so many larger, older women, I have body issues and very rarely get in front of the camera. It is already clear that the world will be a different place when we come out of isolation, and if I am to thrive, I need to grow, move and change with it.
I chose to show my day through my amazing view, starting off with sunrise, moving to midday and ordering in food .. all with the iso stand back no contact delivery and ending the day relaxing with the iPad.
I am normally a light touch landscape photographer, Photoshop is not my happy place, which means this is imperfect in many ways, which makes it perfectly imperfect!
The Conversation Room
Initially I wanted to show me, in the room in the house I spend most of my time in when I\'m at home. Its my peaceful place, but lately there is a little too much peace.
I call it the Conversation Room. It is where lots of discussions are held. Life plans are made, meetings take place and clients get to view their photos for the first time there. But most of all its a place where family & friends usually gather when they visit. It holds lots of wonderful memories.
Of course, I have lots of conversations with the A-Team on the couch over long cup of teas... (they are an agreeable mob).
Me in the Conversation Room.

Social isolation drove me to the pantry for inspiration. Parts of this image remind me of what I believe a virus looks like - little droplets, some spreading, some contained. If nothing else Corona virus has taught us how to keep ourselves contained to stop the spread. @tafly1963.

When you’re missing your best friend during isolation, you have to get creative...
We are lucky to have wonderful neighbours with children similar ages to our own, it’s a fairly common occurrence for the kids to wander back and forth across the bridge between our two properties at will.
When we first went into self isolation one of the biggest disappointments for Jedda, 8, was no more crossing the bridge to hang with her mates. However, the kindness and resilience of kids never ceases to amaze me.
When the little girl next door heard of Jedda’s situation (we had to isolate quite early) she decided to bag up some of her toys and deliver them to our mail box. Jedda has played with the toys non-stop and although they miss their face-to-face hangs, they are making do with bridge hangs for now.
Kindness and creativity just makes everything that little bit easier right now.
Chinatown, Melbourne. Just prior to Stage3 restrictions being brought in I managed to walk the streets one last time. The silence was deafening as I walked Chinatown. This laneway felt like a movie set.
Isolation . . . Week 1 . . . Old Town Temecula, California . . . This part of town is usually bustling with people, especially on a nice day . . . this isolated chair sums up how it is now
My first... PANDEMIC
Social distancing also means no social time for this little guy. Can\'t wait to play with his friends again... @svilaphotography
These are unprecedented times, when a three year old re-writes the rules on how he engages in creating art.
Isolation is the word
Tidy toy box, cars & scooter parked up. This silence ain\'t golden. Just one leap from the bench over two cars Poppy \"He\'s a boy\" Grandma \"Oh my God\"
Isolation complete. \"Don\'t leave home for Easter\" in fact unless absolutely necessary don\'t leave home. Gates locked veges growing provisions in Glorious Isolation. @KRP69KRP
April weather has been unseasonably cold in the California mountains. Here are three of my babies waiting out Covid-19 and the weather. No Instagram handle.
Self Iso around me...100-200mt street of commercial shops near where I\'m living. It used to be a crowded Street anytime during the day and even more during the night. All of the shops, have got something written in front of their doors. 25 shots (there was not enough space to add more) together in a collage to document what\'s happening around me. Of course, the same situation, is happening in all over the world.

Solo Crow Moving On. I was in my backyard and liked the way the crow sat against a grey sky. He liked ominous as crows do. I was going to get the shot with him still on the antenna. But his flight looked good, anyway. An isolation moment in time.
My daughter is looking out the window after finishing her home school for the day. She is understanding of what is going on in the world right now. Taking advantage of technology to keep up to date with school work as well as keeping in touch with school friends on-line is important right now.
COVID-19 was already in the news, but we still couldn\'t figure out what it all meant. I\'d organised a photo session with a few photography friends, Craig Stampfli who\'d driven all the way down from Brisbane and the amazing Peter Levshin stopping in on his way home from Burma, heading to Los Angeles.
It was a glorious morning - so many more images but this was one of the first in the set.
I miss the ocean as all the beaches are currently closed. I have taken the water for granted and now realise that once this is all over, I am going to learn to swim properly.
Early morning Wamberal
Early morning in my home town of Dromana on the Mornington Peninsula, the streets are usually bustling with cars and traffic. But since quarantine conditions have been slowly increasing less and less people venture out.
What shall I watch now
From the Ice Skating Rink barrier to the Backyard washing line.
Our backyard is her Ice Rink for the time being.
She steps out her routine to the music that she has worked so hard on and stretches. It is not the same but we will get through this, together.
Most mornings I would encounter people walking, riding or fishing in this peaceful location. Now, it has a lonely silence. Even the birds are fewer in numbers and more solitary than ever. As I watched this seagull fly by, I reflected on how small my world was becoming.
I see this seat every day and there are always people resting, waiting, sipping coffee, catching up with friends or simply catching a few sun rays before heading back to work. Now no one sits and it looks lost in the memory of how once it had a purpose.
Gym, hair dressers, dental and travel, one thing at a time, the world would unravel. Birthdays, weddings and funerals too, new government rules we must stick to. For some we lost jobs which didn’t feel nice, and fresh fruit and veg was suddenly overpriced. Social distancing, affection on hold, otherwise this virus will never be controlled. Emergency staff working around the clock, gloves, gowns and masks continue to be re-stocked. The sun still rises, and most certainly still sets, trust me when this is all over, our efforts will be of no regrets. Things will be tough for a little while longer, but just think at the end, we’ll be so much stronger. Do your part and just stay inside, wash your hands often and you can keep your pride. @alicepye
